So today starts one month after starting a new job. Even though transitioning meant alot of daily changes and challanges I did not miss any italki lessons. I look back at starting with italki in the fall of last year and think I might have to make some changes. I settled in on 2 teachers and lately one of the teachers has moved, taken vacation, schedule problems and I need to make a determination if a change is needed. Honestly I’m not sure if the method she has been using is effective at least for me at this stage. I’m sitting here this evening as I purchase more italki credits and think I need to change things up a bit.
I’m going to try out some other teachers and see if I can find a possible replacement. Very lovely lady but now after a year of lessons I need to evaluate the results and think about another year.
It’s been great having online lessons with italki hands down. No schedule issues, no traveling to a remote community college far away from me that might offer korean once a year on a tuesday night and offers no follow up classes after the introduction class, and skype quality most of the time is just fine…it’s been great! Of course one of the key is finding a teacher that you click with and is good but there is enough of them to try out there. But when your studying korean and can’t find alot of other ways to find classes italki rocks!
This sunday I have setup a lesson request with a new teacher to try things out. I think I’m going to spend september trying a few different teachers and maybe make a change to the lineup. I wish I had tried italki when they first started up as my other teacher who has been my main teacher has been with them for over 6 years.
Let’s see how the search goes this month.
